Are you going to pull an all-nighter to get the counting done?!
Oh whats even more pics when you have friends like Memphis :
Here is the handle for the Perfect double bit - the most well balanced axe I have ever held :
And then my Cruiser Homestead. You know how I love the paper :
That Kelly Perfect would go perfectly with my single bit Kelly Perfect I just got!!! I'm now on the lookout!!! Tomorrow we're hitting up more garage sales, may be the last time for the year-wish me luck!!
Operater, we're all well aware that you have more axes than one sane man should ever have. Since that's established, don't be shy, KEEP POSTING UP THE PICS!!!!
Bought this old thing for $3 today:
OH YEAH, it's a Plumb Cruiser!!
Here's a question: Do cruisers often have a cutting bit and a grubbing bit or do they usually just have two cutters??
nice work! man that looks nice...
i've been working all afternoon on mann true american.
I found this yesterday at a local flea market for $10. Has the original handle and within 5 minutes of taking it outside I had already sliced my finger. Two swipes across the blade with my sharpener and like a dumb ass I ran my finger down the blade. She is def sharp. I am unsure what model this is but it will make a great camp axe. Anyone have any ideas on the age? Almost forgot to mention that it has 2 1/2 marked on the bottom side of the poll but my pic was blurry so I thought I might decode it for you. Thanks for looking.
that 'flea market' wouldn't happen to be 'trade day' outside of falkville, would it? if so, i'm originally from around that area (eva) and was there in june. i went there specifically to try and find old axe heads. i didn't find crap...
that is a damn wonderful find. consider yourself lucky...
Great find at a fantastic price!
Picked these up at a tool garage. That's a 36" sandvik (before they became bahco) and a little 2 1/4 pound Walters in about a 27" handle. The handle was a NOS Garant handle from Canada. That makes one really really Canadian axe.
I've never ventured in here before, but I had a little time on my hands and was perusing BF, saw this forum and remembered I have some pics of an axe that I picked up off of e-bay maybe 5 or 6 years ago and I thought you'd might like to see them:
The axe was not described as being made by Scagle, so it went for less than it should have. It also had a unique nail puller, but I didn't keep any photos of it and subsequently sold it so I can't re-shoot any :-(
That looks like a nice axe. Here is one I recently found, quite happy to finally find a good scout axe. 'Tis one of the Walters mentioned earlier in the thread. Thing holds a edge better than any of mine, my thumb will testify to that.
nice pics and axes. good finds!
